The Historic Fan District is an 85-block Victorian residential neighborhood immediately west of the Richmond downtown commercial area comprised of mainly single family residences. The Fan District development followed the tracks of a late 19-century trolley line. This popular name refers to the way in which certain streets radiate or “fan westward” from Monroe Park at VCU.

There are eight parks within the Fan District, many of which are geared towards smaller children. These parks are wonderful little islands within the sea of homes around them.

Boulevard, Broad, Belvidere, Main: These are four of the main streets within this famous area.
These homes are nestled in the Fan District. A buyer must be ready to act quickly. Homes that are priced right sell quickly. In the past few years, most homes sold in less than 3 months.

By the year 1930, the Fan Area had assumed the distinctive character that it possesses today: a compact, cohesive inner city neighborhood containing a variety of building types and a diversity of architectural styles and building treatments within a consistent harmonious building pattern. Several of these streets originated as early 19th-century turnpikes or trade routes leading westward from Richmond. There is extraordinary architecture throughout the Fan with some of the commercial residents maintaining their original storefronts. You will find some hidden gems of dog play areas and community garden plots. All this to enjoy your city life as well as find bits to keep your sanity as you get back to nature and get outside. A distinctive feature are the various monuments that are located throughout the Fan.

There are tons of restaurants and bars in the Fan. You will be able to find just about any type of cuisine you are looking for. Tucked away Italian restaurant Edo Squid, authentic Cuban food from Kuba Kuba, and relaxed bars like Commercial Taphouse and Grill are all hot spots for this unique area.
